post #11421 of 16057
I've got a strange problem with my R4.
The rubber grommets for the cable managment seems to stain me when I touch them.
I mean that if I touch them my finger becomes black.
I don't remember that this happened when I first got the case so something must have changed.
Is there any solution for this?
They also might seem a little bit dry, but im not sure.

Have you sprayed anything around them sounds like the rubber is breaking down. Might be dust. thumb.gif

I keep my case fairly dust free so i don't think it's that.
And I also didn't spray anything inside.

one of the things that can affect rubber , making it "melt" is butter (or was it margarine?)

looks great... i have that same cooler and case ... was thinking about using it and just went with my h100i in the node instead... I wanna do some nicer fans just trying to figure out what i wanna use...

ill get some pictures up when i get a chance ... running tests atm...

gonna play with top fans now around and see what goes

//edit, top fans intake or outtake does nothing temperature wise for me.
What kind of GPU cooler do you have? How does orientation intake/exhaust of the side fan affect your GPU temps?

FD design, top notch, more cutting...

EVGA 850 G2 finally arrived, will see if it works, so far only ran it without load to test it, don't ask why, read/see here soon.

FD R4, poor design for 140mm PSU fan.
EVGA 850 G2 is 180mm long and goes all the way to the edge of my bottom fan grill cut, blocks original 140mm bottom fan mounts. Access to modular connectors on the PSU with bottom fan is possible, fan will fit but might need to remove the fan to detach bottom row connectors from the PSU.




Will attempt to cut it round, if it goes bad I will just chop the whole thing off.

prolimatech mk26 with 2x 140mm fans. I`ve put the side fan only on intake since the gpu needs fresh cold air. all the warm air goes on the rear out.
my psu was also edging on the bottom grill, couldnt even attach a fan there with screws. i`ve mounted it with double sided glue tape

I have a similar fan but with 90 degree rotated fins, it tries to push the air out on far ends of the VGA.
Kind of struggles as I can feel the air being pushed out around the fans too.

On yours isn't the side fan pushing against the exhaust of the GPU cooler? Since yours is pushing it to the sides, bottom to MB and up toward the side panel.

Fresh air for sure helps but with some coolers it might work better as exhaust.

More progress:





The snips I found and only I know about are pretty bad, old and not sharp, cannot cut small pieces off to touch up and they bend when they don't want to cut. They are what you guys may know as green tin snips.
Could have made the hole a little bigger on the right, oh well, will touch it up on Monday with a file and that's done.

Oh it is. I`ve mounted the fan outside of the case with rubber anti vibration screws

sadsmiley.gif Did a little upgrading to my dads R3 and now the front audio won't work, what I did was just cut away the AC97 connector since it wasn't used (looked bad and we are using the HD connector anyway) and I just throw it away, and now a few days later when he wanted to use it for headphones there's no sound, it detects when inserted and everything but no sound, the back output works and turns of like it should, I have tried ever possible setting in the software but to no solution.
So I wonder if any one of you R3 owners could take a look (maybe a photo or two) and see if there is some cable going between the two connectors (AC97 and HD Audio) that must still be there. It worked before and the motherboard and sound are the same as before, and the OS is the same install as before.

This it how it looks like now.
